The shakeup time of the Eclipse Season has ended; Saturn’s hand of time has started back up again; Venus has gone back direct; Mars has completed its full cycle since it went retrograde in January.
We have landed in a new zone, a new chapter of our lives. Many are still feeling much difficulty as we adjust to the new zone. We are still processing the changes and trying to make sense of it all, as we are dealing with the issues that have come to reality during the passing time of these important planetary aspects.
Relationship issues especially have come to light, and many are challenged now to sort out these issues and figure out how best to navigate them. This was an especially important Venus Retrograde period, as it happened during the Eclipse Season and had a Venus Passage as part of its cycle.
Some have come to question their relationships as they have traveled into new spiritual and consciousness zones. They are unsure where they now stand with their partners or friends or spouses or family members. They feel perhaps they have grown away from their relationships, and are unsure how to keep the connection.
Others had previously kept their relationship issues covered up, but during this last period of time were reminded what is wrong and not working and can no longer avoid dealing with it.
Others are in new relationships and wondering if they will work out.
While still others have rekindled old connections and are wondering how the old friend or flame can now fit into their lives.
What is most important is that now our relationships need work, issues need to be resolved, and yes some people need to be let go of and to say goodbye.
But the changes that have occurred are not only about relationships. We are in new life consciousness landscapes, and just beginning this new chapter in our lives. Whatever direction you are now moving in may not be clear yet, but you are moving forward nevertheless.
Soon events will unfold that are the result of the shakeups of this recent Eclipse Season that has passed. These events will be a natural outgrowth from what has shaken up at a very deep level of our beings.
For instance at the global level, the meetings with Iran that occurred during the Eclipse Season are over. No more major meetings are scheduled for the future. Soon Nato, western powers and Israel will be deciding what to do. The chaotic situation in Syria is very connected to Iran and decisions will be made on what to do.
I believe that the western powers will now find a way to dominate Syria and Iran, and there is a great chance that war will be the result. Global Powers like China and Russia appear to be firmly backing the governments in Syria and Iran. Much will soon unravel in the Middle East.
In Egypt during the Eclipse Season, a new President was elected, he a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. This will also greatly affect the Middle East. The Middle East, as a result of the happenings during the Eclipse Season, will soon bring us new and important events this summer and autumn.
Greece has also had a bumpy ride during the eclipses and has elected a new government. This new chapter in Greek life will soon bring events that will shape our USA and global economy.
The Middle East and Global Economy will bring the most important events into our world soon.
And in the USA a culture conflict has been intensifying and will play out this summer and autumn as we get ready for a presidential election in November. This past week, as Saturn went back Direct, we witnessed the Supreme Court giving the go light to the health care platform of President Obama. The events that result from this decision will be soon forthcoming and will greatly affect the coming Presidential Election as well as the culture wars in America.
Some are even predicting a kind of civil war brewing here in the USA. The Zimmerman/Martin court trial will be part of this culture war also.
There are still many people who do want to progress into a Diversity in Unity future. They like the old world of separation and privilege for the few just fine. They like to keep up class warfare and believe certain peoples are better and deserve more than others.
They also believe certain countries are better and those countries deserve to make the world in their image, to dominate others to lead lives just like them. They are the colonialists and they still are operating, getting everyone to believe that they are ridding the world of the “bad guys” again, to make the world a better place. Iraq and Saddam Hussein are recent examples of modern colonialism and domination of other cultures for your own benefit.
Syria, North Korea, and Iran are the now evil enemies. Do not buy into this propaganda. We are moving into a world of equals and Diversity in Unity, a healing of our Earth and human family, a revelation for all that all and everyone is connected, all the dots in the Universe are connected in meaningful Unity. We are each cells in the greater body of humanity, the Earth and Universe. We are interdependent and need one another so we can move into a New Aquarian Age together.
Evolution is dependent on our knowing that our survival is dependent on our being in Unity consciousness and in Unity with one another.
There will likely be a powerful climax to the Old World before it leaves us, and the next few years while Uranus is squaring Pluto from now through 2016, will bring the worst of the old paradigm smashing into our collective faces.
We must be strong and keep hope alive as we each expand our consciousness in alignment with the principles and frequencies of a new paradigm and Aquarian Age. As Rome burns, we build and create our new world. By 2021 we should be solidly residing in our new age, but till then we will be in crisis while in transition between ages.
This coming week brings a Full Moon and Mars finally leaving Virgo for Libra.
Mars has been in Virgo since mid November 2011. It usually spends only a month to six weeks in a sign. It has been in Virgo so long because it went retrograde there from the end of January through mid April, and has since been slowly finishing up its Virgo travels.
Mars in Virgo has brought our active energies into often harsh reality, finding order and fixing, analyzing and sometimes obsessing, grounding, simplifying and making more humble.
Now Mars goes into Libra on Tuesday July 3 and will stay there until August 30. While Mars is in Libra we are directed to make relationship, make more beauty and artistry, find balance, and honor justice and fairness. Making relationship not only means social connection, but also means finding the connections in everything, how one thing is related to another, how one color goes well with another color, how one person goes well with another person.
And of course Libra is the scales of balance, which is what the legal system uses to signify justice.
So the discriminating and sometimes nitpicking energies of Virgo shift to the more refined and socially aware frequencies of Libra.
Also on Tuesday July 3 is the Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn at 2:52 PM EDT.
This Full moon brings to completion and resolution issues begun at the New Moon in Gemini on June 19. This Cancer/Capricorn Full Moon is about balancing our personal and professional, our domestic and career, our inner and outer values, our connections to “father” and “mother’ attitudes and principles.
Keep in mind that next week, on July 14 we have another round of Mercury Retrograde beginning.
